It was a nice, clean hostel close to the metro and to the important sights of Berlin. Staff was very friendly and helpful. All in all it was a really nice experience and made our stay in Berlin even better.

Good location, 3 minutes from U Bahn station. 15 minutes to Bradenburger Tor (by walking). Many of bike rentals around (if you prefer biking than train). The lobby was really cozy. Breakfast all you can eat only for 4.9 euro. Free map on the desk. I stayed in 4 bed-room. The bed is okay but it's quite hot so I... More

Some people here must have had some bad experiences with individual staff members because everyone we spoke to was really helpful and polite. A couple of staff went above and beyond to help... More

I have stayed at many hostels but never experienced such an unpleasant stay before. The service is as unfriendly as can be. I can just recommend everyone to stick to the "houserules" that were never shown or mentioned to us, otherwise you might end up with paying fees of €80 or more. Apart from that it smells awkwardly on every... More

The rooms were really basic, but clean which was the main thing. The great thing about this hostel is the location, it was just perfect for a few nights and exploring the... More

This is by no means the best hostel in the world, but by no means is it the most expensive. It is a typical, clean, reasonably well appointed hostel. What it does boast however, is possibly the best location in Berlin for sightseeing being within easy reach of Checkpoint Charlie and it's associated museums and the Brandenburg gate and it's...
